We’re only one week in to Ogle Madness, and already some contestants are already soliciting votes on social media in an effort to advance through the bracket.
For example, earlier this week, House Minority leader Emily Virgin asked her Twitter followers to vote in her first round matchup against Jesse Jane:
Oh hey I’m up against Jesse Jane in today’s @TheLostOgle Ogle Madness! I’m not sure how I feel about this because there are undoubtedly tons of jokes to be made, but nonetheless, go vote!

The call for support must have worked, as Emily won by a 441 – 229 margin. Also, unlike the Sports Animal / Franchise matchup, which resulted in Carey Murdock challenging Eddie Radarsochavolich to see who can call the most five-star recruits in a 30 minute time frame, the Jane / Virgin matchup was a complete ironic coincidence. I wish it was intentional, but it wasn’t. Good luck to Emily in her second round matchup against Darci Lynne Farmer.
Emily isn’t the only local celeb wanting to cut down the Ogle Madness nets. Earlier this week, Marla Morgan – last year’s champ – went horseback riding with 2-seed Joleen Chaney as part of a joint publicity campaign.
